3.x interface is terrible
By , for WP 4.3.1

No idea why the Yoast team would decide to so heavily alter what was already a very well-built and designed plugin. The new, icon-based layout for SEO editing is such a massive step backwards in terms of UX.

I don't have any idea who could possibly claims that *removing* supporting text in favor of non-descriptive icons is an improvement in discoverability and ease of use.

I'm not going to be upgrading any of my clients' sites to the newest version, as the break in style and function is too large and too far removed from practicality.

Not as user freindly

I have now gone back to the other SEO plugin, but keeping this installed, just deactivated in hopes they go back to their friendly version.

new version is just weird...making it difficult to fill out.

All OK now!

Was good until 3.x
By , for WP 4.3.1

Have always used Yoast, and put up with some buggy releases in the past, but this 3.x release takes the biscuit! Not only are there bugs galore, and major, site-breaking ones, but everything new about is a massive step backwards.

The 'real time analysis' adds weight to your pages. Who needs real time analysis? No one! The 'snippet editor' has replaced the meta description box. What the hell was wrong with the box? Nothing! And no one understands the snippet editor. It's unintuitive. The UX in general is clunky.

I could go on, but I won't. I'm going to keep using 2.3.5 and hope the yoast Team come to their senses.

The 3.0.x will crash everything, only downgrade to 2.3.5 will fix this. Maybe wont't upgrade to further versions.

You're killing me with this update guys
By , for WP 4.3.1

I updated this morning. I don't mind the interface changes, but I don't find them intuitive. The real problem is that since the installation Visual Composer is gone. I can only create and edit with the the HTML editor. This is a breaking issue guys. I have to roll back at this point.

Bad update. Broke all settings on my site. I had to re-save every section of the plugin. I found after I lose some of the customers. 1 star of course.

currently useless. 3.0, 3.01, 3.021
By , for WP 4.3.1

Everything works fine before this release (3). Now I lost all tittle and snippet information from every page and post and new editor doesn't work at all.

several errors
By , for WP 4.3.1

Even after the update to version 3.0.3 there are several errors:

- The website is <meta name = "robots" content = "noodp" />
- The keyword density is 0%, Which is a bit low; the focus keyword was found 0 times.
- The images on this page does not have alt tags.

Garbage update and company
